I am drinking some Porters today and next up is a “Limited Release” from Avery.

From the bottle: “Expanding the porter category, we’ve added a delightful dry-hop aroma to blend with the sweet caramel and robust chocolate characteristics of a traditional porter. It’s big, bold and black!” That last line reads like the tagline for a porno movie. Hee hee.

It may not be appropriate to talk of Pop!ping the cap, but that is just what I did. I got carried away on my pour and following the pseudo-cascade, I got the tiniest of overflow. I also got three fingers of dense, light-tan head with good retention. I could smell the minty hops filling the room like a pleasant air freshener. Color was Dark Brown to Very Dark Brown (SRM = 27 – 34) with NE-quality clarity and cola highlights. Between the minty hops and the chocolaty malts, I thought that I was sniffing a Peppermint Patty. Here comes Trick or Treat! Mouthfeel was medium, much less carbonated than its predecessor. Taste was spot-on: minty and chocolaty, one big Yum! This was much more in alignment with what I enjoy from this style. Finish was slightly bitter, but eminently drinkable. The glass was lined with beautiful, sticky lacing and I found myself licking my chocolaty lips while gazing at it. Why must this be only a Limited Release? Make it year-‘round!

A very solid black-ipa/porter. Attractive with a nice head, hoppy and roasty aroma, easy enough to drink a couple in a sitting. Sort of blends the styles well, with the taste being distinctively porter, but certainly with some additional hops added for good measure, and the abv tends toward ipa as well at nearly 7% (not a good or a bad thing...)

I wasn't as thrilled with this one, which I tend to find more around the holidays than other times of the year. Something just seems a little off about it to me; maybe the flavor profile just doesn't work for me. Even so, Avery still puts out a good product, so it's not a bad beer, just not my favorite.
